Charles Hutin
(French, 1847–1898)
Still Life, c. 1886
Oil on canvas, 18 × 30 inches
Signed at upper right: “CHARLES HUTIN”

Note: This painting retains its original frame, which bears a plate inscribed: “Société des Amis des Arts/de Pau/Loterie de 1886”


Born in Paris, Charles Hutin first exhibited there at the Salon of 1874. Hutin painted genre and narrative subjects as well as still lifes, and the juxtaposition of an antique helmet, a sword, and books in this painting suggests that the artist intended to give the work literary overtones. One of Hutin’s paintings is in the museum at Langres, France, and the inscription on the frame plate indicates that the first owner of the present work acquired it in a lottery held by the Friends of the Arts in Pau, in the Pyrénées region of southern France, in 1886.
